MySpace has posted an exclusive sneak peek at the Inglourious Basterds online video game featuring Eli Roth’s character from the film, Sgt. Donny Donowitz. Eli released the game to his MySpace fans first. Here’s his blog about the game and the contest:
This goes out to the rest of the world tomorrow but I’m leaking out to you guys first! Why? Because I’m a basterd that’s why! And because they’re gonna announce a contest where the high score gets to go to the premiere, and I wanted you guys to have the jump on everyone else. So here it is, in all its gory glory, The Bear Jew video game! Voices provided by yours truly. Now let’s go kill some Nazis!
Play the game during its official launch starting tomorrow August 3rd from 9:00 am Pacific Time, until August 4th at 9:00 am PT, get one of the highest scores, and you’ll be in the running to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend the Inglourious Basterds premiere on August 10th.
In the game, players pick up their bat and fight like Sgt. Donny Donowitz (aka The Bear Jew) voiced by Eli, who plays a Boston-bred soldier in the film.
Inglourious Basterds opens in theaters on August 21st. The WWII epic stars Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Nastassja Kinski, Samm Levine, Mike Myers and B.J. Novak. Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds weaves together the infamous, oppressed, real and larger-than-life stories of WWII.
